This is one of those pieces where I’m pretty sure I would only detract from the point by actually commenting on it.
I will say this: I had no idea Iranian despots followed the NFL so closely. Then again, if you do follow the NFL closely, you know much better than to think Colin Kaepernick is “one of the best” quarterbacks in the league, or even a halfway decent one during his final two seasons. You either listen to the media slobbering and think Aaron Rodgers is some sort of god, or you actually watch the games and you know Kirk Cousins is the man.
But it’s neither here nor there. The tweets tell the story today, folks:

Do you think Ahmadinejad realizes people can respond to your tweets? Ha.

I wonder if Kim Jong-un wants to weigh in, heard he's a fan of the #NFL too.

In less than 24hrs, the Islamic Regime of Iran will kill 22yr old Kurdish activist Ramin Hossein Panahi for defending the same rights that @Kaepernick7 is standing up for, including social injustice. #NFL #Kaepernick #JustDoIt #SOSRamin #RaminHosseinPanahi #رامین_حسین_پناهی

We will gladly trade you Kaepernick for U.S hostages Siamak Namazi and his 81-year-old father Baque.
Siamiak has spent most of his detention "in solitary confinement and has been interrogated relentlessly, beaten and tased. But poor Kaepernick so oppressed. 🤮 #boycottNike

And you know what? Most American liberals are more willing to speak out for Kaepernick, who slanders police officers, than they are for people like Siamak Namazi, Baque Namazi or Ramin Hossein Panahi, who are the victims of the Iranian regime for exercising the same rights as Kaepernick.
Except that they have no such rights in Iran, thanks to a system supported by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
